Last updated 4/27/2021 at 11:24am
My name is Caleb Hayes, and with a lot of prayerful consideration and each and every parent, teacher, and student of BCISD in mind I am announcing my candidacy for BCISD Board of Trustees Place 2.
I am a graduate of Port Neches-Groves High School, where I was a soccer player, a member of the National Honor Society, Spanish club, and a member of geronimo's crew. I graduated with honors in 2004. After graduating from high school I then attended Lamar University Beaumont. I graduated from Lamar University in three yrs all while working 50 hours a week. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration with my major being Human Resource Management.
While in college I met the love of my life Amber Wheatley who was born and raised in Bridge City. She introduced me to the Bridge City way of life, and I have lived here in Bridge City since 2009.
I have worked various careers in my life. I have worked retail which taught me how to listen to and treat my fellow humans. I have also been a heavy equipment operator, operating a variety of equipment such as a bull dozer, track hoe, front end loader, and crane. But the most important job I have ever had is being a parent. I am currently a stay at home dad and have been since 2012. I have two wonderful children, Charles who is 12 and is in 6th grade, and Amelia who is 6 and in 1st grade. I am also the church council president of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church right here in Bridge City. I also volunteer with the Lighthouse Soup kitchen in Orange and Some Other Place in Beaumont, along with the sack lunch program Good Shepherd offers those who need it in Orange. I am also on Good Shepherds building team in which we are currently building a 6,000 square foot multi-use gymnasium that will have our church's thrift shop (Seek-N-Find resale shop) attached to it.
Out of everything I have done in my life, the best job is being a parent. This my fellow citizens is the reason I am running for school board. I want to represent not just my children, but all children in the district and their parents. I do not have a popular name, and most people do not know me, but I have a strong passion for our children to have a safe place to receive an education. I believe it is the school districts job to protect our children from the minute they are dropped off at school till the minute they are dropped off back home. Our children also have the right to go to a schooling which they don't have to worry about bullying or being made fun of. School is about getting a great education and Bridge City is the best place for that. I will never put sports in front of education. I will be the strongest advocate for the children and I will always listen to teachers, parents and students anytime of the day or night. I believe Bridge City has some of the best teachers in the state of Texas and I believe it is time for us to show them the praise and attention they deserve.
A vote for Caleb Hayes is a vote for your equal. It is a vote for a person whose soul job is to take care of children. I may not have the name recognition, or fancy job, or fancy title, but I have the experience that really counts. I have two children in the district. I currently face the problems our district has, I have a child who is bullied and I have seen the districts way of handling it. I know what needs to be done, I know what our teachers, parents, and students deserve. So a vote for Caleb Hayes is a vote for change and a vote for progress. I would like to thank each and everyone for their vote, but most importantly their support, because together we can make a difference.
